Dexter EZ Flex Rubber Suspension Kit

Well a couple weeks ago, I decided to buy the Dexter EZ-Flex rubber suspension kit. It upgrades the bushings from plastic (YES, PLASTIC) to bronze and allows you to grease them with a grease gun. Additionally, the rubber core absorbs road shocks to improve the ride of the trailer and contents.

It was a perfect swap from the old steel equalizers and tiny, weak shackle links to the new Heavy Duty Dexter setup. There are some pics of somebody else's swap (since it was such a messy job, I didn't take any pics). At the same time we pulled the drums and repacked the bearings. The bearings were in good shape, although it seems like the bearing grease that was used from the factory was a pretty light weight grease. I repacked them with Napa extreme pressure wheel bearing grease (left over from my rear axle bearing replacement) and since we had Heavy Duty Marine grease in my buddy's grease gun, that's what we used for the Dexter suspension components. We also rotated the trailer tires - tires stayed on the same side, just put the rears on the front and fronts on the rears.

Finally, I pulled out the old Anode rod and it was completely disintegrated. I guess I didn't replace it last season like I had thought. This got me to thinking. How does everyone else keep track of their RV maintenance? Some of this stuff only gets done once a year or every couple of years, so it's easy to forget. I'm going to add this to my aCar app on my EVO.
